Scarlett is living her happy-ever-after, back in the real world. Only the ‘happy’ part is proving problematic. For starters, there’s the isolation. Being a Cerulean among humans is fraught with risk, so her time with people can only be fleeting. Which means being with Luke but not being with Luke. Then there’s her Cerulean light, her power over life and death. Less awesome talent, as it turns out, and […]
